Neck Pain Q & A

What Causes Neck Pain?

Your neck pain could be the result of too much daily stress or muscle tension. Neck pain can also develop due to muscle strains or a direct injury.

For some, chronic neck pain can develop over time due to the progression of arthritis or disorders in the cervical vertebrae, the spinal bones that support your neck.

Other common causes of chronic neck pain include:

  • Poor posture
  • Repetitive motions
  • Overuse injuries
  • Disc degeneration
  • Nerve compression


For some, neck pain starts as a general ache and progresses to chronic, debilitating pain that interferes with your ability to work or participate in your usual activities.

How is Neck Pain Diagnosed?

The team at Health Atlast offer the convenience of on-site diagnostics to ensure you get fast, accurate results. First, your provider discusses your lifestyle and occupation and listens to your symptoms. You can expect a thorough physical exam, during which you provider tests your neck’s range of motion and identifies areas of swelling and tenderness.

To pinpoint the cause of your pain, your Health Atlast provider will probably order imaging tests like X-rays. X-rays can confirm or rule out issues like vertebral misalignments and arthritis.

Once your Health Atlast doctor understands the source of your pain, they create a custom treatment plan that focuses on relieving your pain and improving your range of motion.

What Treatments are Available for Neck Pain?

Many holistic treatments can relieve chronic neck pain and prevent recurring neck problems.

Initially, your Health Atlast doctor will recommend doing therapeutic exercises at home or with the guidance of a physical therapist. These exercises can release tension in your muscles and improve your neck’s range of motion.

If your pain is being caused by spinal misalignments, you could benefit from chiropractic care. The experienced Health Atlast chiropractors can assess your spine health and restore balance to your spine’s alignment through manual adjustments.

The Health Atlast team also offers acupuncture and deep-tissue massage to address chronic neck pain. Both treatments can alleviate pain, reduce tension, and increase blood flow to the neck.

Your Health Atlast provider can also address issues like poor posture that contribute to recurring neck pain. If you work in a manual labor job, they can recommend better lifting techniques and discuss how repetitive motions could be stressing your muscles.
